Schlossbrauerei Maxlrain brews an especially festive beer for the Advent and Christmas season. The brew master carefully oversees creation of this noble libation. Through a mixture of selected bright and dark malts, the Maxlrainer Märzen acquires its distinctive full-bodied taste and delightfully amber-colored appearance. Maxlrainer Märzen is a must for every festively decorated table in Gasthäusern and at home.

mile (3575) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and faint bread with light hoppynes. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light grassy hoppyness, light metal and faint alcohol. Your typical märzen with sharp metal in the finish.I do not get any "fest" here.

kappldav123 (5593) - GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts fine malty, spicy, dry background. Also some wheaty notes. Finish a bit metallically. All in all an average festbier. Okay.

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2014
500 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Munich, Germany. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of grains, some very disturbing soapy notes and plastic. Flavour of grains, sugary sweetness, unclean yeastiness and grass. Light bodied and harsh carbonation. Not good.

Idiosynkrasie (5335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Muggy, strawy and grainy aroma, horse stable-stored straw. Taste is minimally sweet grainy, a touch of honey, plain bitter hoppy overtones.

massingasetta (494) - München, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2014
Ein leicht dunkles Bier welches gut riecht nach Malz und Süsse - so wie Weihnachtsbier es soll. Schaumkrone ist ordentlich und der Einstieg ist recht kräftig und vollmundig. Ein schöne wärme und Schwere. Der Körper ist nicht sonderlich abgerundet, insgesamt ist der Mittelteil dieses Bieres gewissermassen leer. Das macht dieses Bier süffig - da es hier zwar ein Nachhall von den Malzgeschmack des Einstieges gibt, aber es fehlt etwas nichtdestotrotz. Der Abgang ist ebenenfalls wenig bedeutsam. Fazit: Maxlrainer ist für mich immer ein anständiges Bier, welches eine Facette trifft aber nicht im Gesamtkomplex ins Schwarze trifft.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
The beer starts malty, slightly grainy with hints of sweetish malt. The mainpart is sweetish-grainy, a bit unround. The aftertaste is long, sweetish-grainy and slightly malty. --> 7/10/8/7

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle 0.5l. Pours clear amber with small off white head. Aroma is slightly sour, metallic, malty. Taste is medium sweet, lightly bitter, caramel. Boring. Another example of a so called Festbier without much character.

Blasphemer (108) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2012
12.12.12(Flasche):fester,cremiger und beständiger Schaum, kupferfarben, klar. Süßliche Getreidenote, ebenfalls mit dabei Karamell, Honig. Macht schonmal Appetit. Der Antrunk ist ist recht leer, dann wird es sehr schnell malzaromatisch und süß. Im Abgang leicht bitter. Die Rezenz ist passend zum süffigem Rest zurückhaltend. Leckeres Festbier
